For fans who don’t know, Supreme Grade Blades are the 12 most prized blades in the One Piece world, also known as Saijō Ō Wazamono blades. These 12 blades are of supreme quality and, based on their ranking, have incredible durability.

They can cut through anything, like a hot knife through butter. On several occasions in the story, viewers have seen a glimpse of what these blades are capable of in the hands of a skilled swordsman.

Recently, Oda-Sensei (revealed via @pewpiece) on X that the Marine admiral, Fujitora, was one of the wielders of the Saijō Ō Wazamono blade. He said,

It’s called the “やくざ火線” (Yakuza Kasen – Yakuza Firing Line). It’s a “shikomizue” (swordstick, cane sword) and its one of the Supreme Grade Blades. Its a meito (named blade) made by Fugetsu Kisaburou from Wano Country.

This revelation is quite intriguing because Dracule Mihawk is another wielder of the Supreme Grade Blades. He is the World’s Strongest Swordsman in the series and has risen to his position at a young age, and fans have seen his power on several occasions in the story.

Oda-Sensei’s Revelation Has Made The Fans Admire Greatly of Dracule Mihawk

Dracule Mihawk is known to be the wielder of Yoru, one of the 12 Saijō Ō Wazamono blades. Although the origins of the sword remain in One Piece as of now, one thing is clear: the sword is tremendously strong.

However, that’s not all because Yoru has a black blade, which makes it extremely durable, and it can slice through anything. While any sword can be blackened by infusing the user’s Haki, Yoru is not like the others because it has an all-black blade, which is extremely rare.

Even though the rank of Yoru is unknown in the show, it is certain that Dracule Mihawk is indeed the greatest swordsman in Oda-Sensei’s magnum opus. Fans are surprised by the mangaka’s revelation at SBS 109, as they commented on the post.

Since the show is nearing its end, it is only a matter of time before the anime reveals all of its mysteries and secrets, leaving fans of the series surprised and stunned by what Oda-Sensei has in store for them.

One Piece can be streamed on Crunchyroll.
